Located off the tip of clear water bay peninsula, Tung Lung Island is an outlying island without community or notable residential.
We book our ferry tickets online and be there on time for boarding. It’s about 40 minutes ride and Nam Tong ferry pier come into view. Kids are excited along the ride as they saw many fishes and jelly fishes.
We started our hike anti-clockwise. From pier, you’ll pass by some local restaurant/cafes before heading to the clear trail, keep walking until you reach a junction where you could take the right turn to a view point call “Rock Carving”, or keep walking towards left and continue hiking to “Luk Keng Wan”.
Most of the trail is not covered. So beware if you’re hiking in summer or on a hot sunny day. I was sunburnt and had a moment of sunstroke. It took us 1.5 hours walk from pier to Luk Keng Wan, and it was tough hike, even for us. At the junction where we have to decide if we want to continue hiking up to Nam Tong Peak, then Ghost Cave and Spring Rock (a loop back to pier), we decided to turn back.
Turned back, took a short break at the South Garden Store (cafe) before heading clockwise to the pebbles bay just 5-10 mins away from Holiday Store near the Tung Lung Fort. Kids love this place where they could find conch/ sea snails and crabs in between the rocks and pebbles.
I do think Tung Lung Island is overcrowded. There are many campers, it’s unbelievable. The hike is moderately challenging, kids in our group age 4-6, and they’re all frequent hikers. I am confident we could finish the route if the weather ain’t so hot 🥵
